Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry presents a quirky collection of five stories starring a whole cast of the ever-popular undead. Here you will find a semi-sequel to Dead of Night in which four Army reservists are assigned to hold a small rural bridge during the early days of the zombie apocalypse; a comedic story involving a couple of idiot moonshiners, a comet, gangsters, zombies, and the Great Chicago Fire; a downbeat psychological drama set in the bleak wastelands a few years after the zombie apocalypse; and more - including a story written exclusively for Blackstone.

Jonathan Maberry is a New York Times best-selling and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author.

Damn good collection of diverse Zombie tales

What did you love best about Hungry Tales?

The variety within the tales.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hungry Tales?

When the sound of the picks stopped.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The final story made me very sad.

Any additional comments?

This short collection of stories is absolutely outstanding. I liked all of the tales in this book but my favorite has to be the final story about the Samurai searching for an honorable death.

Very impressive

Any additional comments?

I discovered Jonathan Maberry when a friend recommended Patient Zero to me. I was very surprised to find it so enjoyable. His writing is impeccable. His attention to detail and knowledge of a variety of different areas of science and politics really blew me away. So when I saw a collection of short stories from him I grabbed it immediately, anxious to see if he could do more than a good zombie story. Well, I was not disappointed. This one and also Tales From the Fire Zone were both completely engaging and incredibly well written. His writing is smart and crisp and the stories move quickly and make sense. The gore is just the right amount, the romance is just the right amount, and the tension is perfectly drawn out. With these books Mr. Maberry has solidified himself as one of my top 3 writers. I hope that Hollywood will take note - his books would make fantastic movies.

Average horror stories

These stories weren't too bad. Not what I would consider major horror stories. Some strange and interesting ones and a quick listen. Some I had a tough time with keeping my attention.

Great stories well worth the READ.

Entertaining. Great stories of both the Living and the Dead. The retelling of the GREAT CHICAGO FIRE WAS MOST EXCELLENT.

For the love of zombies...

I love the way that Mayberry takes history, mythology and zombie lore and pretzels them into fun new experiences.

Left me hungry for more, but in a good way!

Really enjoyed this group of short stories. Mayberry paints mental images with his words that I will not soon forget! Highly recommend!

Pretty good

Not bad. But not as good as the first book.

Also the Irish and British accents were godawful so I had to skip that part. As a Brit, couldn’t tell if they were from Ireland, Yorkshire, a cockney or what. Very confusing.
